Rumours from earlier this year also suggested that the iPhone 8 will cost north of $1000. If the price speculations are to be believed, the next generation iPhone will cost $300 or more than the previous generation iPhones.
Apple has been under immense pressure this time around as people are looking forward to something special from their tenth anniversary iPhone.
A September launch is hardly surprising as the previous iPhone’s were also launched in the same month. According to earlier reports, the iPhone 8 will launch alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
While the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus are expected to come with the same design and form factor of the iPhone 7 launched last year, the iPhone 8 is expected to sport an edge-to-edge OLED display — in competition with Samsung Galaxy S8 device.
According to numerous leaks and rumors, the awaited iPhone 8 — or whatever the company decides to call it — will feature a tall bezel-less display with only the front camera, sensors, speakers being the only other things occupying space on the front panel of the device.
The upcoming tenth anniversary iPhone 8 is also rumored to have removed the TouchID and feature only facial recognition scanner to unlock the device with biometrics.
Apple will be focussing on ‘Face ID’ as means to unlock the next-gen iPhone and will most certainly try to do a better job than Samsung did with the S8 — more so since Touch ID is speculated to be removed.
Apple will also be officially rolling out the iOS 11 at about the same time as the rumored iPhone tenth anniversary edition launch in September.
